FieldBook is a free online application to track custom workflows in the form of a simple database, similar to spreadsheets but with less complexity. Sometimes, you might get annoyed with spreadsheet while tracking lists or workflows, then my friend this application is definitely for you. No more use of heavy spreadsheet software, as you can use “FieldBook” to track service work, plan roadmap for products, schedule tests, track workflows, and much more. You can also share the database with others and invite them for collaboration.

You might know that spreadsheets are generally used for accounting and finance purposes, but this application focuses more on tracking lists and workflows which makes it distinct from spreadsheets. It has a grouped view option which makes it much easier to track workflow. When you track lists or other tasks, it lets you manage and view the flow with ease. The best part of this application is that it lets you link sheets, which helps you reference rows of a sheet from the column of another sheet.
